We also noticed that Grevillea crithmifolia is flowering here in Perth at present. We saw this one during a visit to Lake Claremont during the past week, but you will also find it growing in both Kings Park and Bold Park.
Spring is still four weeks away, but there are already plenty of wildflowers in bloom here in Perth. Walking around Lake Claremont earlier this week, we noticed that Two-leaf Hakea (Hakea trifurcata) is nicely in flower.
You can easily see where this plant gets its common name – there are clearly two types of leaves – thin spiky ones and flattish ones that look like pea pods. Two-leaf Hakea can also be found in Kings Park and Bold Park.
The reported flowering season for Native Wisteria (Hardenbergia comptoniana) is July-Oct. However this twining/climbing plant got off to an early start this year – it has been flowering in Kings Park and Bold Park for most of June. The plant is common in coastal areas of the southwest of Western Australia, from about Dongara to Albany.
Cutleaf Hibbertia (Hibbertia cuneiformis) has a reported flowering season of Jan-Mar/Jun-Nov. There aren’t many flowers on it yet, but we did see a few flowers recently in the bushland on the north side of Lake Joondalup in Perth’s northern suburbs. You will also find this plant growing in Bold Park, though we haven’t noticed any flowers there yet.
